Mossel Bay Lighthouse

This is the Cape St Blaize Lighthouse, seen from our room at the Point Village Guest House.

St Blaize Trail Mossel Bay

The St Blaize Trail begins directly under the Mossel Bay lighthouse. Here you may start with the St Blaize Cave where artefacts dated to the Middle Stone Age have been found. The trail itself is easy to moderate and will lead you along beautiful spots just like this one.

Stillbay Beach

Stillbay is a tourist town for South Africans, that is: other tourists usually do not visit it. It is a bit off the N2, and while it is not ugly, it is not too beautiful either. The beach, however, is great!

Swellendamm South Africa

Swellendamm is definitely worth a stop: the third-oldest town of the country is about halfway between Cape Town and George. You will notice the historical buildings, like the church or the Suger & Spice Cafe.


The Drostdy of Swellendamm was built in 1747, and the governor was living here until 1846. Then the building was sold, and since 1936 it is used as museum.
